Cassettes are making a comeback, but CDs are the superior vintage music format
A grave rock ’n’ roll injustice akin to Vanilla Ice outselling Ice Cube and Christopher Cross topping Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” at the 1981 Grammys, cassette tapes have somehow re-emerged as a cultishly popular music format while CDs are falling by the wayside.
Yes, cassettes. Those cheap, flimsy, plastic thingamajigs that warp in the slightest sunlight and require you to press the fast-forward and rewind buttons 25 times if you ever dare to replay a song.
The ‘Boogie Oogie Oogie’ band wins? Grammy’s big shocks
NEW YORK (AP) — There was little doubt who should take home the album of the year Grammy in 1984. That was Michael Jackson with a little record called "Thriller." He won, of course, but the Recording Academy hasn't always been seen to make the right call over its 60 years. And you don't have to point to just Milli Vanilli to find some surprising decisions. Here are some others.
The long-proposed collaboration between singer/songwriter Christopher Cross and the San Antonio Symphony finally happened Saturday night.
It was certainly worth the wait.
Cross, 66, was born in San Antonio and attended Alamo Heights High School before starting a career that led him to an Oscar and numerous Grammy awards.
For some, it will be their first appearance at Foellinger Theatre. Those include Christopher Cross with guest Stephen Bishop and former Journey lead vocalist Steve Augeri.
Others are favorites – think Chicago, Kansas, The Lettermen, The Beach Boys and ZZ Top – and they will be making a return.
Those are among the entertainment acts that Mayor Tom Henry joined with Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Director Al Moll on Friday to announce for the 2017 summer concert lineup at Foellinger Theatre.
